Mascot
    Unofficial mascot of the 2000 Sydney Olympics
    Designed by cartoonist Paul Newell
    Popularized by comedians Roy and HG
    Spoofed official mascots Syd, Ollie and Millie
    Having both 'Fatso' and 'Fat-Arsed' in the name seems redundant.
    He appears to be mooning people.
    He was featured on a lot of unauthorized merchandise.
    He was more popular among Australians than the official mascots.
    Gold medalists Susie O'Neill, Grant Hackett and the men's 4x200 relay team appeared with him on the winners' dais.
    The original Fatso was sold at auction for $80,000, with the proceeds going to charity.
    A statue of him was included in the official memorial outside Sydney Olympic Stadium.
